    Skb Ink-220

    This is a review of SKB Ink-220, what I call "Sky Blue" On my recent trip to Taiwan, I found a bottle of SKB Ink-220. SKB is one of the historic fountain pen manufacturers in Taiwan. The company was established in 1959 and at one time was one of the top 3 Taiwanese fountain pen manufacturers. While not widely known here in the US, they manufacture a wide range of fountain pens. While I am not certain if SKB produces their own fountain pen ink, they market it under their name. The ink comes in a number of colors. I was only able to obtain one - Ink-220. SKB Ink 220 comes in

    Montblanc Honoré De Balzac

    This review is part of a series of "blues reviews". Someone sent me a sample of this ink a while back. At long last I've gotten to using this lovely ink, and writing up a review. The papers are Hammermill 28lb inkjet, Mohawk via Linen, and Tomoe River. Too bad I didn't know about his ink when it was available as it's a nice turquoise. The ink appears to be a single dye. Somewhat similar to pthalo turquoise.

  4. Hello dear FPNers, Today I have something new, something German, something menthol green for you: Moctezuma 1 Pierced Sky is one of the most recent inks released by Montblanc. This ink is a complementary part of new Patron of the Art series: Homage to Moctezuma 1. It is a limited edition ink, and it has a 50 ml cube shaped bottle, which is a pretty standard bottle shape of Montblanc. I suppose this ink is very close to J. Herbin Vert Reseda, but a tad darker than it. Another similar ink is Edelstein Jade. Unfortunately, I have neither of them, because this cannot be called as my

    Pif Robert Oster Turquoise Review

    Only my second experience with a RO ink! This is a moderately thick, saturated turquoise that exhibits good shading, decent flow, but slightly problematic dry time for southpaws. I like it anyway. It also makes a good drawing ink, especially in an italic nib. Thanks once again to amberleadavis for the PIF! http://extras.ourpatioparty.com/files/5715/9019/0851/RO_Turquoise_001-640p.jpg The chroma twins show some separation into greens and blues. Which makes sense...it's turquoise! http://extras.ourpatioparty.com/files/3115/9019/0851/RO_Turquoise_Chroma_001-640p.jpg
  6. I don’t know if it’s the warm and sunny weather that just hit the northeast after a cold spell, but, more than ever, I’m not ready for summer to end! So to keep the summery vibe going, I thought why not do a comparison of turquoise and “beachy blue" inks. This is by no means a comprehensive review, because I’m missing some great turquoise inks, such as Sheaffer and Lamy Turquoise, but I saw a post come up on the boards with questions about turquoises, so I wanted to share samples of the ones I have. The 15 inks tested are: Caran d’Ache Turquoise, Omas Turquoise, Rohrer & Klingner Blu Mare
  7. Penbbs #286 幽山向晩 (Remote Mountain By Nightfall -- not an official translation) comes in a "60±5ml" bottle with a octagonal horizontal cross-section. It's damn difficult to come by a bottle. It's isn't so easy just to come by an image of a bottle of it! Source: eBay (I'm trying to rediscover my enthusiasm for reviewing inks by doing one, and move to an easier procedure by using just one or two pens instead of five or more. Alas, no joy, but what's done is done, so here it is.) Drying time: Astoundingly fast. I don't think I've tested any other ink that almost completely dried on

    Surfing The Fountain Pen Teal Wave

    I have noticed over the past year or so, a significant but growing number of fountain pens produced in the teal or turquoise family of colors. Here is a listing of entries that fall under this wave. Please add others that I have missed. My guess is that this color is selling well, otherwise, all these manufacturers would not have jumped on board. This a bit of a retro color event. I believe that the last time teal was popular may have been when Parker 51's were at their height in the 1950's and blue/green teal was a frequent color choice.

    Penhouse.in Inks

    Hello all. This is my review for the penhouse.in inks. Attached below are the swatches of violet (above), and turquoise (below). The paper I have used is the Thought Slot dotted inserts which are readily available on amazon.in. The pen I have used is the Camlin KOKUYO Trinity, which I also got from penhouse.in. The turquoise ones show some amount of feathering on the paper, while the violet does not have the issue. The ink takes about 3 seconds to dry. It is not waterproof. This isn't available in cartridges, but the ink comes in plastic bottles, and costs about Rs. 30, or ~$0.5. The tu
  10. I have been thinking about mixing relatively inexpensive inks from India to produce something I can use in my writing. I have to be conservative with my choice of ink for official use- only black/blue-black, and my writing should be somewhat impervious to water damage. In my personal use, I prefer a vibrant, unusual blue ink. I have two ink mixes ready for experimentation. I. 3 parts of Daytone Turquoise Blue + 1 part of Camlin Royal Blue = Custom Blue. II. 3 parts of Daytone Calligraphy Black + 1 part of Camlin Permanent Black = Custom Black. The first photograph below is how the in

    Ink Review: Krishna Cool Breeze

    Hi, I recently went on a hunt to find the best turquoise-blue ink I could find and I landed on this ink by Krishna pens. This ink is a part of their super-saturated series and the color is a super nice azure. Here's the full review: Color: The color is a super vibrant turquoise without any green undertones. this ink is a true blue. the color is somewhat similar to Robert Oster Fire and Ice and Noodler's turquoise. Drying time: THe flow of this ink is very wet. I used a medium nib and it took about 35-40 seconds before it became completely dry. the pen I used was relatively dry flowing, so
  12. I've just photographed a bunch of Col-O-Ring cards with darker blue-green inks, while comparing them to a custom-mixed ink discussed in Inky Recipes: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/334121-masques-mix-black-swan-in-icelandic/ I thought I'd share the photographs here, in case they will be helpful for anyone. Since display calibration and general accuracy of representation varies, the main value of these is comparative between the shades. Though I did try to make the colors appear as I see them in person (at least on my devices). I think Fire& Ice should be slightly more
  13. This ink has been reviewed many times, so please refer to others. This review is my subjective opinion of this ink and will differ from others. This is one of the first Diamine inks that I have tried. About a year ago, I needed some cartridges for an upcoming trip, and ordered Diamine Turquoise for both the price and color of the ink. I have been pleasantly surprised with this ink. It is not a pretentious ink. It is a lovely color of turquoise - not too blue and not too green - just unashamedly turquoise. It reminds me of the beautiful turquoise skies in Arizona, and of my husband'
  14. I've been using Visconti's Turquoise in my Rembrandt and the pen is struggling with it - it is as if the ink is too dry for the pen. I've tried different papers - and the feed just isn't very generous. I switched to Waterman's South Seas and the flow is excellent, and the pen is working fine. Has anyone else had a problem with this ink in this pen?

    Twsbi Eco Turquoise!

    I just got the notice from Goulet that the TWSBI Eco Summer 2017 special edition turquoise pen is in stock. I ordered both an EF and a 1.1mm. Beautiful color! Now, I have to be patient until they arrive...

    Turquoise - Graf Von Faber-Castell

    Graf von Faber-Castell was founded in 1761 and developed into the major manufacturer of wood-cased pencils. With time they started to offer much broader range of products. Few years ago company's introduced six inks. Last year they've added three new colors to the line. This year they've done the same. Three new GvFC colors hit the shelfs. Burned Orange Carbon Black Cobalt Blue Deep Sea Green Electric Pink Garnet Red Hazelnut Brown Midnight Blue Moss Green Royal Blue Stone Grey Turquoise Violet Blue Turquoise is one of three new additions to the line. As many of you know I'm not a turquois
  17. Just a brief comparison between a vintage and a modern ink: some time ago I was offered a cornucopia of vintage ink bottles that had been delegated to a decorative presence on the shelves of an unknown seller. The price was right and the hoard included a couple of Penman bottles, reputedly half full, so I took the plunge. All inks but two were known to me: a Talens CC Blauwzwart (Blue Black) and a Talens Super CC Azuurblauw (Azure Blue). My experience with the former was the same as in https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/25329-two-vintage-dutch-inks/: there was no blue left and the

    21 Turquoise Inks

    Recently, I became obsessed with light blue inks especially if they are turquoise, whatever that means. Turquoise is described as greenish blue but most inks with that name are basically blue with one or very few dyes. Chromatography with these inks is not very exciting. Many of them are, however, very beautiful (to me at least) and have uncommonly good writing properties perhaps because of their simplicity and relatively low dye content. Sheen is possible with some of these ink, at least on Tomoe River paper, but water resistance is uniformly not good. That said Pelikan 4001 Turkis Turquoise

    Ink Review: Monteverde Capri Blue

    Monteverde's revamped line of inks recently got my attention for their comprehensive lineup of clear, distinct hues, as well as good value. A 90ml bottle can be had for about $13-$15 USD from the better known online retailers in the United States, making it a very good deal. Monteverde touts their "ITF Technology". From Monteverde's promotional material, here's how it claims to benefit us writers: At my recent visit to the 2017 LA Pen Show, Monteverde gave a free bottle of Malibu Blue ink to all show attendees. A company representative had all their inks available for sampling with swabs, a
  20. I thought I'd share an ink mix which I am really enjoying at the moment (I hope this is the correct sub forum). I bought a bottle of Pelikan 4001 Turquoise because I wanted something different in my blue ink collection, however I found it to be un useable for my office work; far too light and bright. In my ink draw I had a bottle of Pelikan Blue Black to hand so I used an empty cleaned out Pelikan Edelstein bottle and combined measures of the two in order to make a fantastic ink which I can use in the office. This ink is within my personal boundaries of what is "office friendly", obviously
  21. It's time for another Ink Giveaway PIF! I am giving away a nearly full bottle of Caran d'Ache Turquoise Green ink. This is an older ink that is discontinued. I think Caran d'Ache renamed this ink as "Caribbean Sea" ink before it was discontinued, and it has a devoted following. Here are the rules: 1) United States only. 2) Winners of my previous PIFs (Levenger, OMAS, Rotring, J. Herbin, Montblanc inks) are not eligible for this PIF. 3) Everyone who posts on this thread saying they want the ink through Saturday, February 11, 2017 is eligible. 4) On Sunday, Februrary 12

    Looking For A Budget Turquoise

    Hi all, I'm in the market for a turquoise ink. Still a student—and an unemployed one at that—so it's best not to recommend something on the more $$$ end of the spectrum. It will also mostly be for mark-up of documents so I don't need anything fancy. As for criteria, I'd like it to have things closer to blue than green, a lighter shade, and generally good performance (doesn't take an eon to dry, doesn't feather on average quality copy paper, won't fade like a washable blue, and minimal show-through). Perks like sheen, shading, and water resistance would be nice but are not necessary. So far

    Blu Mare - Rohrer & Klingner

    Rohrer & Klingner operates since 1892. At the moment it's the fifth generation of the family that manages the company. I guess that after 122 years they know what they are doing. R&K inks offer amazing quality for amazing price. In my country a bnottle of R&K ink costs 5-6 $. I know it's a bit more expensive in America, yet I believe the price is still reasonable. I find it interesting that Rohrer & Klingner seems to focus mainly on the content and not on the bottles. Inks come in industrial looking bottle taht is quite handy but there's just nothing fancy about it.
  24. I've been wanting a dark blue-green ink for a while, and a little while ago, I came up with the idea of mixing Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue (American Blue would probably also work), Private Reserve Ebony Green, and distilled water. Here's what it looks like, on Rhodia dot paper: http://www.stefanv.com/pens/fpn_photos/supershow-ebony-blue-green.jpg Looking at it in Photoshop's colour picker tool (after colour correcting the image), it seems very slightly on the green side of blue-green. Comparing this to other ink reviews on-line, it looks almost exactly the same as Pelikan Edelstein A
